Show user groups in User Profile section

Post by VLADYLimitLess »

Hello!
I've seen this in Who Read What extension and I think it would be a good idea and not too hard to implement.
Instead of user ranks: and then a list with all user groups, it could be a simple list, with all their groups names and of course, their colors. If you didn't understand what I asked for, here:

Not very practical where there are many groups - the list would be quite long and detract from the other data on the page

Possibly a nice extension, but I don't think this is an improvement on the select box already in the core.

I don't see why this was panned. Yes, I think they should be formatted differently than what the images depict but I really don't view this as a bad idea for something like phpBB4.

I kind of remember having seen this as an extension already.
And to me it sounds like something for an extension, not a default feature. (so it's a NO for me).

Added:
Not exactly what VLADYLimitLess wants I think, and not exactly what I thought I had seen either, but I found the extension which I thought was more or less in line with the Idea.
It's Profile Flair which allows adding images based on groupmembership to the profile. The images are small but that could be edited.
Spelling is freeware, which means you can use it for free.
On the other hand, it is not open source, which means you cannot change it or publish it in a modified form.

You already can see all user's group he is in in a nice drop down. You suggestion would only clutter the view space on smaller screen which is bad imo.
